CRUSTAL HEAT FLOW: A GUIDE TO MEASUREMENT AND MODELLING is a handbook for geologists and geophysicists who manipulate thermal data, particularly for petroleum exploration. Heat flow data can provide an indication of past geological events and present economic potential of fossil fuel deposits. In theory and with practical examples the first two parts of the book discuss the sources of heat within the crust, describe how to maximise the accuracy of temperature data, cover the measurement of the thermal properties of rocks, and explain a number of maturity indicators. The last part of the book covers a range of thermodynamic models of the lithosphere and goes on to show how these can be used to reconstruct the thermal history of individual sedimentary basins. The focus remains consistently on practical applications, with worked examples providing a comprehensive guide for data reduction and interpretation. This text will be attractive to a broad range of earth scientists. Many geologists will be interested in applications for global modelling and structural geology, but the topics covered will also be of specific interest to the oil exploration industry. This book will be regarded as a long-term reference source for professionals and researchers. It will also form the basis of advanced undergraduate and graduate student courses in geology, geophysics, engineering, mining, and environmental science, and will be a valuable text for petroleum industry training schemes.

G. R. BEARDSMORE is a Research Fellow at the Department of Earth Sciences, Monash University, Australia. Dr Beardsmore received his PhD from Monash in 1996. During his time as a student he was the principal researcher and coordinator of an industry-sponsored programme, Heat Flow Compilations and Thermal Maturation for Petroleum Exploration in NW Australia. After completing his PhD he spent time working with heat flow researchers in China (Changsha Institute of Geotectonics) and the United States (Southern Methodist University). He has published around a dozen papers on heat flow and tectonic evolution and has contributed to chapters in the volumes Applications of Emerging Technologies: Unconventional Methods in Exploration for Petroleum and Natural Gas (1997; ISEM, SMU, Dallas, TX) and Geothermics in Basin Analysis (1999; Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers). Dr Beardsmore is a Member of the Petroleum Exploration Association of Australia (PESA) and the American Geophysical Union (AGU). J. P. CULL is a Professor of Geophysics at the Department of Earth Sciences, Monash University, Australia. After joining the Australian Bureau of Mineral Resources he received an Australian Public Service scholarship leading to the award of a PhD from Oxford University in 1973-75. He was subsequently awarded a French Government Fellowship for Science and Technology concentrating on geothermal studies at BRGM (Orleans). After returning to Australia he was employed by CRA Exploration Pty Ltd as Principal Geophysicist responsible for the application of electrical and EM methods for base metal exploration. He joined the staff of Monash University in 1986 and was responsible for introducing a full range of geophysical coursework options. Professor Cull continues to research in heat flow, geodynamics, electromagnetics, mineral exploration, and geotechnical studies. He is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (F.AusIMM), a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Energy (F.AIE), a Member of the Australian Society of Exploration Geophysics (ASEG) and a Member of the Environmental and Engineering Geophysics Society (EEGS).
